Acting Course for Film and TV

Acting Course for Film and TV every Wednesday 19.45hrs (we only run small courses which fill up quickly, so unfortunately, the following available places are not until the course starting 6th March 2024)

We are primarily a production company NFD Productions, that believes 100% in “Training while Creating”. It is the core philosophy upon which all our actor training is based through our Acting Course for Film and TV. This means it is beneficial for our actors to have extensive professional filming equipment. Additionally, it gives actors unique opportunities in our productions—for example, working with named actors such as Jamie Lomas and  Persephone Swales-Dawson, who were in our “Risk Takers” TV pilot.

We operate in a unique two-tier approach of opportunities on non-commercial and commercial film sets. New students are trained on non-commercial film sets and will progress to commercial film sets as their acting abilities improve.

Adult students must be 24 or over. Ages 16 to 24 are catered for in the young person section, HERE. In special individual cases we may allow younger students please speak to us about that.

Students completing the course will be invited to join our successful Film and TV agency.

Many web casting organisations claim to make you a “STAR” and all less for spotlight deal in low quality work requiring little at best to no talent at worst. Extra work, short/student films, etc are often much more likely to harm your cv than help it, if you really want to get worth while parts. This is in our opinion the only worth while online casting organisation given all the substantial/main parts from Game of Thrones to the main Hollywood Films etc all appear here and generally no where else. If you don’t have the required credits to be on spotlight you can’t apply simple as that; so we work really hard to help you get the required credits.


Lastly we really love what we do so you can always be assured of the very best possible experience no matter your level of ability.
